English Breakfast and Almond Hariseh.

Hello everybody.

What did you cook in this weather? all my group members started posting dishes since morning,all locked up in snow and cooking !!

My kitchen was busy doing lots of stuff,a brunch rather than a breakfast cause we ate late, I made a typical English breakfast sunny side ups,scrambled eggs,hot dogs and beans ,a favorite dish for my husband and boys but not me so I baked some ka3ek like last time but today’s batch was much better and more fluffy , ate them with cheese my kind of meal !

Last night I made this new recipe I found,wanted a change from usual hariseh or semolina cake so after searching decided to do this ,turned out nice but as my hubby said it’s not hariseh something totally different guess because it has almonds in it and eggs are separated so it’s a more a cake.


Ingredients and method:

* 4 eggs separated.

*1 cup sugar ( i think 1/2 or 3/4 are enough)

* 3/4 cup melted butter.

* 1 tsp vanilla.

* 2 tsp baking powder.

* 1 tsp lemon zest.

*1 1/2 cups semolina.

* 1 cup ground almonds.

*pinch of salt.

* sugar syrup ( 3 cups sugar,1 1/2 water and 1 tsp lemon juice)


* Separate egg yolks from whites.

* beat butter,sugar,lemon zest and vanilla till creamy.

* add eggs and beat well then add baking powder, semolina and almonds.

* beat egg whites till frothy and stiff.

* fold in whites into mixture slowly with a wooden spoon.

* grease a medium sized pan and pour mixture in.

* bake in a medium heated oven for 30-40 minutes toll golden.

*Note: you can decorate it with almonds or coconut on top as you wish.

* when done add the cold syrup on top.

Hello everybody.

Last night when I asked the boys what do they want for lunch,they told me chili like the ones we eat in usual chili restaurants,they even dared me if I can make it similar or close to it,they even searched for the original recipe and sent it to me.

Well then it was a challenge today, I did the recipe exactly as is,nothing more or less, they liked it a lot,proof is they ate it all :)

I made chili with hot-dogs and potato chili.really yummy!

Ingredients and method:

For chili sauce:

*1 small onion finely chopped.

* 1 clove garlic finely chopped.

*1 tablespoon oil.

*2 tablespoons tomato paste.

*2 tablespoons chili powder.

*1 tablespoon oregano.

* 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon.

*2 tsp coccoa powder.

* 1 tsp salt.

*1 tsp balck pepper,

*1 tsp all spice.

* 1 tablespoon vinegar.

*1 tablespoon brown sugar.

* 2 cups chicken broth.

* 2 cups tomato sauce or fresh tomatoes.

* 1/2  kg ground beef.

* hot dogs,mustard and finely chopped onions for sandwiches.

* cheddar cheese.

* buns.


* saute onions and garlic in oil til golden,then add all other ingredients and stir well,finally add beef ( I sauteed it before but didn’t add anything to it ) and tomato sauce then add chicken broth and leave to simmer till sauce is thick and brownish.

* assemble the cheese cony,by filling buns with onions,mustard,hot dogs then add chili and cheese.

Really good tasty but spicy a bit for me,hubby and boys loved it.

Aqaba Trip Goodies :)

Hello everybody

My son and his friends are going to Aqaba tomorrow morning, thought i’ll make them some goodies to eat during their stay cause they’re staying in an apartment not a hotel.

Best thing to do for easy handling is some some hot dogs,cheese and za’tar pastries,perfect for breakfast or snacks. i also made some cinnamon rolls,a new recipe I got from www.foodlve.com.


ingredients and method:

* 4 cups flour.

* 1/2 cup vegetable oil.

* 1 cup warm milk.

* 1 tsp salt.

* 1 big spoon instant yeast.

* 1 tablespoon sugar.

* some water if needed for kneading.


* Mix all dry ingredients then add milk and oil,knead well for 5 minutes then leave to rest and rise in a warm place.

* prepare stuffing: hot dogs with ketchup and mustard,cheese,and za’tar with oil.

* I made hot dogs like rolls,cheese as balls and za’tar as parcels,of course you can chose any shape you like.

* bake in a well heated oven till golden.

Hope they’ll like them,look and taste are perfect.

God bless all your kids and keep them safe .
